Our exclusive pathways programmes

Move on to successful study at one of New Zealand’s leading universities with our university pathway courses. Successful completion will guarantee students entry into the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology (AUT) or Victoria University of Wellington.

A guaranteed pathway to university

Students who successfully complete one of our foundation programmes, and can meet the entry criteria for university study, will have a guaranteed pathway to an undergraduate degree.

Exclusive university partnerships

We have exclusive partnerships with three of New Zealand’s leading universities: The University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and Victoria University of Wellington. Our specialised foundation study programmes combine academic learning in your chosen subject with English language development and independent study skills.

Specialised courses, personal care

While you study the specialised University Entrance and English language courses required for university in New Zealand, you will receive a high level of personal care and support to make it easier to study far from home. This will give you an excellent foundation for future university study – or any other educational pathway.

English studies

Our specialist English schools – ACG English School and The Campbell Institute – will help you learn in an English-speaking academic environment, and give you the confidence to undertake your university studies. Our quality courses can be integrated with your foundation studies programme.

Support and studying abroad

If you aren’t a New Zealand resident, ACG Pathways will help you get established by finding somewhere suitable for you to live, making your travel arrangements, and even helping you find part-time work. This means you can concentrate on your foundation studies.

Our qualified tutors offer one-to-one attention and encouragement to help you progress in your course and reach your academic goals.
